French term or phrase: les attributions recoupent la mission ainsi confiée
This is in the Board of Directors by-laws, in the section where they are talking about assigning specific duties/assignments to a director, specialized committee or third party.

"Lorsque la mission est confiée à un administrateur, le projet de lettre de mission est soumis au Comité de Nomination et de Rémunération pour avis sur la rémunération ainsi que ses modalités de paiement et un plafond de remboursement des frais de mission.

Le rapport de mission est remis au Président du Conseil d'Administration qui après l'avoir approuvé en communique la version finale à l'ensemble des membres du Conseil d'Administration ainsi qu'aux Comités spécialisés permanents dont **les attributions recoupent la mission ainsi confiée.**"

[end of section]

I'm having trouble with the verb "recouper" here and am not sure of the meaning of this last part of the sentence.

Petit Robert defines "recouper" as "coïncider en confirmant" (5th definition, figurative meaning -- the others are literal).

Seems like they might mean "the committee that usually deals with the type of assignment given".

Any ideas as to the exact meaning and suggestions for phrasing this nicely will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
